The Floyd County Commission approved on Tuesday reductions in registration fees for spring recreational sports, announced officials of the Rome-Floyd Parks and Recreation Department.
The new fee breakdowns are as follows:
- Spring Softball: Early registration for softball will be $65, and $75 for regular registration, with late registration fees at $90.
- Spring Baseball: Early registration for baseball will be $65, and $75 for regular registration, with late registration fees at $90.
- Spring T-Ball: Early Registration fees for t-ball will be $50, and $60 for regular registration, with late registration fees at $70.
Softball, baseball and T-ball early registration dates are Feb. 1 – Feb. 7. Regular registration dates are Feb. 8 – March 4. Late registration begins March 5 and runs until registration closes officially, of which the public will be notified.
Additionally, discounts will be applied for multiple children in a household who register during regular registration, with $10 off being applied for additional children.
For example, if the first child pays $75 during the regular registration dates for baseball, each additional child would register for $65 for baseball.
Kevin Cowling, director of Rome-Floyd Parks and Recreation said these reductions and discounts should make registering for recreational sports easier on families’ wallets, and give more children the chance to play.
“Our primary purpose is to serve community members by making recreational sports possible for each child who wants to play,” Cowling said. “We want the public to know that we have heard their concerns, and by making these registrations more affordable, we hope to give local young athletes more opportunities to experience sports and develop character through teamwork, making new friends and having fun.”
Registration for softball, baseball and t-ball can be completed online at rfpra.com, or by registering in-person at the Parks and Recreation Administrative Headquarters located at 1 Shorter Ave. For questions, call 706-291-0766.
